Key Words— ABC-MIL-STD-105E , Automotive Vendors, Average Outgoing Quality Level (AOQL), Inspection, Pakistan



Abstract— The objective of this study is to share the perception of the application of ABC-STD-MIL-105 E Sampling Standard for random sampling in automotive vending industries of Pakistan. There are sever international standard are being followed by this sector which are accessed periodically by certification bodies, but their qualitative performance they are delivering to their customers are generally not well known. The perception that MIL-STD better perform than 100% inspection or any other sampling inspection standards are shared with this community along with the hypothesis what it effect commonly on cost of inspection, supplier appraisal, help in decision making for inspectors and ultimately on the higher customer satisfaction. Beside Average Outgoing Quality Level (AOQL) was also the focal point of this study to determine what are their internal rejection rate at the time of final inspection of the finished product leaving vendor premises verses the percentage of rejection they physically received from original equipment manufacturers (OEM) in using diversified sampling inspection plan. Sample size of 96 vendors selected for study out of their population of 166 vendors and data collected on the basis of convenience sampling during the Auto Part Show held in 2014. Main objective are organization meeting the higher customer rate? Is the MIL-Standard is the strong enabler among the other locally applicable standards? Do their customers are highly satisfied with their AOQLs?
